Be prepared! Parking can be very tight at the Gondola during the summer, especially during the daytime before 5 PM. Skip the hassle, leave your car behind and take the free shuttle or Roam bus from downtown Banff. It's a breeze!

Mountaintop Dining at 7,510 ft.

Perched on the summit of Banff’s Sulphur Mountain, Sky Bistro is the dining sanctuary in the sky. We pair the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains with a distinctly Canadian menu that features the unique flavours of Canada through a handpicked selection of regionally-sourced local meats, produce and ingredients.

Choose to dine a la carte as an add-on to your Banff Gondola experience, or enjoy our signature Sky Experience package that includes Banff Gondola admission and your choice of appetizer and entrée for one great price.

Award-Winning Nourishment

In April 2019, Sky Bistro's Chef Scott Hergott placed first at Cochon555 in Banff, an exclusive North American-based culinary competition that pairs all-star local chefs with sustainably-sourced pork. Congratulations Chef!
